Do you know what DealTotal is?
The developers of DealTotal claim that it is a light-weight browser extension that is programmed to show you the best deals. However, this is not exactly the case, and we suggest that you remove this program from your computer. This program has been classified as adware — the most commonplace malicious program you can encounter. However, you should not take programs such as DealTotal at face value. They are annoying, yes, but they are also somewhat dangerous, because these kinds of applications are likely to promote more malware. Furthermore, this program can also collect non-personally identifiable information about its users. Please continue reading you if want to know more.
Make no mistake, this program is not harmless, but it may take a long time for you to encounter a malicious advertisement. DealTotal was created by a company known as XDisc Corp Ltd, and in this program’s terms and conditions, this company states that “XDisc Corp Ltd has not reviewed all of the sites linked to its Internet web site and is not responsible for the contents of any such linked site.” This is very disturbing but it gets even worse. In another clause it is stated that “In no event shall XDisc Corp Ltd or its suppliers be liable for any damages (including, without limitation, damages for loss of data or profit, or due to business interruption,) arising out of the use or inability to use the materials on XDisc Corp Ltd's Internet site.” It is rather obvious that DealTotal is not a trustworthy application that you should keep on your computer.DealTotal screenshot

DealTotal comes as a browser extension for Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Firefox. Even though it has a download website at Dealgrabber.co/lp, its download does not initiate. Perhaps its developers are experiencing technical difficulties, and that is just as well, because we do not want this program getting on any more computers. Alas, our researchers have found that this adware is now being distributed with the use of bundled software. These bundles are probably featured on shady freeware distributing websites. Our researchers say that those bundles usually contain more than one program and, for the time being, DealTotal is bundled with the likes of iStreamLite.
So, from the very beginning, DealTotal’s developers did not hide the fact that it is an ad-supported program. However, it can be argued that this program is incapable of showing you the best deals, as it is not related to any retailers. It may show misleading ads that will not be of any use for you and will only serve to annoy you. Therefore, we invite you to make use of the instructions we have included below this article that will remove DealTotal for good.

In non-techie terms:
DealTotal is considered an adware program that will inject contextual advertisements into applicable websites that you visit. Since this program relies on deceptive distribution tactics, you may get it unintentionally, and its advertisements may not be of any interest to you. Furthermore, its ads may be misleading. So there is no reason to ignore DealTotal and allow it to remain on your PC.
